Book Review: Starlet's Web by Carla J. Hanna

Starlet's Web (The Starlet, #1)Starlet's Web by Carla J. Hanna
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What did I like about this book? I loved the story, I loved the details and how Marie dealt with it, the author I thought wrote a great book and can't wait to read the next one. This was a book I couldn't put down.

What I didn't like: Even though I liked the way the book was written and the style, I felt some of the words that were used were out of character for that age group. More adult than young adult. But I also felt that it is better to use these words then the other words because any young adult reading it would do better using those words.

I did receive this book from NetGalley for an honest review.

What Goodreads says the book is about:
Love. Lies. Acting. A novel about celebrity influence & teens in Hollywood. What makes a star shine? Humility empowers the spirit. Sometimes.

Discover the Starlet Series for new adult & college readers and uncover the life of a talented actress caught in Hollywood's web of lies.

I'm actress Liana Marie Michael. I won an Oscar at 17 but whatever. Celebrity is what it is: marketing a product. I'm part of a tight-knit group. I keep to myself and don't complain about my life. I've been happy until lately.

Evan dumping me leveled me. Matthew shocked me. I knew he couldn't hurt me with my bodyguard so near, but his I have trust issues. Dating super-hot Byron didn't help clear the confusion either. I'm torn between going to church on Sunday and making a living from pop culture.

But experience builds perspective. My days of shutting up needed to end. First, I told Manuel. Then I told my mom. It turned out awesome until I learned the truth.

Now I'm screwed. Totally. Let's face it: Hollywood's web entangles everyone.
